Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 144: Don't Go Down Stairs. ("Russian Doll") Hey, everyone! What if real life was a video game, where every time you died to respawned to your last save point? That's exactly the surface premise of Netflix's "Russian Doll", which stars Natasha Lyonne as a woman who keeps dying and respawning to the same moment. It's like "Groundhog Day", but trippier.

Hey, everyone! It's Amity's Patreon anniversary--you may recall that last year she selected "The Lost Room" for us to watch, and that one was an excellent recommendation, so we were pretty stoked to dive into this year's rec, the movie version of Stephen King's "Hearts in Atlantis", starring Anthony Hopkins. We've established before that movies are a good adaptation form for King's novellas, and this one is no exception--a movie was exactly the right length to allow for a...

Hey, everyone! This week we rounded out our 80s Hanks Spectacular with "The Money Pit" , which is a really enjoyable if extremely simple movie about a couple and the super terrible house they bought.  It's another short one, because frankly, this movie can be summed up in two sentences. Probably even one sentence. "Tom Hanks buys a super terrible house." But it has some classic THanks bits and is overall just a really fun little comedic farce. Thank you to Jamie Chahine for...

Hey, everyone! It's Week 2 of THanksgiving 2: Electric Hanksaloo, and this week's movie, "The 'Burbs", was...fine. It's just fine. It's weird, and Corey Feldman is in it, and so is Carrie Fisher, and we suspect there is a reason you never hear about why either of them was in this movie and that reason is that this movie was weird and sort of...well, it was fine. It's no "Big", but it's better than "Gettysburg", so that's something, right? Thank you to Jamie Chahine...

It's a longer episode than normal, but that's because this season is just so complicated and has so many layers and also we spent a good 15 minutes discussing how really terrible poor Kate Walsh's wig is. Trigger warnings in this episode for sexual assault, rape, suicide, self-harm, drug use, and gun violence. Also, just, like, so many spoilers....

Hey, everyone! This week we sat down to watch 2012's "Much Ado About Nothing", directed by Joss Whedon. In this episode, we manage to avoid talking too much about the time we were in our high school's production of it, but we  do accidentally pull a "James and Erin Write an Adaptation", during which we show that we know next to nothing about either business or Snapchat.

Hey, everyone! Boy, the early 2000s sure were a time of some enjoyable-yet-problematic TV shows, weren't they? This week we dive into the first two seasons of "The IT Crowd", which is overall enjoyable but  oof , does it have some cringe-worthy moments. We'll take a look at the later seasons of the show in a month or so, to see how they stack up and if the parts of the early seasons that made our skeletons leave our bodies persist.

This week we travel back in time to our own childhoods, where we reminisce about the books that made us who we are today, as well as some real stupid books that we loved anyway (I'm looking at you, Christopher Pike). James was really into survival books, and Erin commits to a bit. Thank you to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?” and to Emily Kardamis ( @corruptedgem ) for our cover art. You can now find more of Jamie’s music...

Hey, everyone! We saw a movie! It's a movie that apparently none of the critics liked, but we went to see it anyway, because Stephen King. Did we like it? You'll have to listen to the episode to find out! (But you can probably guess.) (But then you'll have to listen to the episode to find out if you were right.)

Hey, everyone! We've had quite a few weeks of poor James having to watch things that Erin thoroughly enjoys and he tolerates watching because he is a very good friend and he loves this podcast. This week, he took one for the team and watched the last four episodes of the most recent season of "The Bachelorette" and...didn't hate it. But only because Peter is the best. Let me repeat (rePete) (heh) that: PETER. IS. THE. BEST. Ahem. Thank you to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did...

Hey, everyone! This week we sat down with Allie and Adam from So That's How It Ends to watch American Psycho 2: All American Girl, which was a CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE and EVERYONE should go watch it. Immediately. It's on HBO until October 1, 2017. Please enjoy our discussion of the second half of the movie, when shit gets REAL BONKERS. Thank you to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?” and to Emily Kardamis ( @corruptedgem ) for our cover art. You...

Hey, everyone! This week we sat down with Allie and Adam from So That's How It Ends to watch American Psycho 2: All American Girl and completely steal their format! (We had intended to cover the whole movie in one episode, thus only partially stealing their format, but, you know, we talk a lot. And also this movie had MUCH to discuss.) So here is the discussion of the first half of the movie, and the discussion of the second half will drop this morning as well. Drop like one of Mila Kunis's...

Hey, everyone! James watched a movie, and Erin has also seen the movie, so we wanted to talk about the movie! We also discuss potential UFO-themed Halloween costumes, and neither one of us can BELIEVE we forgot Derek and his oil and his gold Speedo and his "doing it". (Heh. Doing it. There's a lot of that in the movie James watching, amirite ?)

Hey, everyone! You ever have one of those weeks where you and your cohost both go out of town for a weekend and then have to bump recording up a day because you have houseguests the rest of the week, so you don't have time to consume any pop (or not-so-pop) culture to prep for your podcast? No? Just us? Well, that's fine. All those things DID happen to us this week, so instead of discussing a new obsession one of us has, we decided to talk about the thing we have both been obsessed with for a...

About 18 months ago, Erin didn't like the idea of a female Doctor, despite being generally pro-badass-female-characters. Well, we have a new Doctor incoming, and she's got boobs. We unpack some of the implications of this, for ourselves as well as on the whole, and also take a deeper look at the relationships between past Doctors and their companions and how  having a female Doctor might solve some of the problems we've seen in the past (and what new problems could now have an opportunity to...

Hey, everyone! This week, we check out the website Sorting Hat Chats and take a really deep and serious look at who we are and what that says about which Hogwarts house we would end up in (spoiler: one of us is not who we all thought he was!). Erin says "deep dive" a lot. Like, so many times that listening back through this to edit it, she just really wants to go stab Past Erin in the neck. Also, and this is very important: we shout-out Adam from So That's How It Ends , but Erin is an...

Hey, everyone! This week we continue our deep dive into "Before I Fall", this time watching the recent movie. Spoiler alert: The book was better. Trigger warning for some discussion of teen death, including suicide.

Hey, everyone. This week, we read the 2010 novel "Before I Fall" by Lauren Oliver as the first of a two-part series. The book is basically "Groundhog Day, Teen Edition", but better (question mark?). It has its problems, sure, but Andie McDowell ain't one of 'em. Trigger warning for some discussion of teen death, including suicide.

Hey, everyone! From the weirdos who brought you "Redo Year's Eve 1" and "How To Make Friends And Resurrect Your Pets", a new romantic comedy starring some people who are not named Steve! "Time Travel Love Song" is about, well, time travel. And love. And songs. And text-to-speech programs?

Hey, everyone! We sat down with Our Friend Marc again for a long and lovely conversation about obsessive-compulsive disorder and how it affects one's approach to pop culture and fandom. We hit on a lot of topics during this chat, but in the end Marc ties it all up for us.

Hey, everyone! This week we have a sleeper topic; one of those things that we probably should have talked about before now but for whatever reason we haven't. But we promise we stay WAY more on topic this time than when we covered Firefly . (Mostly because Erin edited out the tangents for a future outtakes episode.) (You're welcome.) Today we discuss YouTube--how our use of it has changed over the years, what we're currently using it for, and how the next generation uses it. (Spoiler alert:...

Hey, everyone! This week we go back to basics--no guests this time, just James and Erin and some articles James found online that we sort of talk about but not really because we are too busy talking about other things, like how Saved By The Bell: The College Years was just flat-out wrong about how college works and we're still a little bitter about it.

Hey, everyone! We deviate a bit from our standard fare this week as we are joined by Mary from Hungry Hungry Hip Girls , who guides Erin through a whisk(e)y tasting and James through a whisk(e)y smelling, as James rightfully decided that drinking a bunch of whiskey at 9 pm on a Wednesday was maybe not the best idea. Additional talking points include apples vs. tomatoes, and some bizarre anime porn thing Mary stumbled upon. Thank you to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know...
